A Woman’s Work
A symposium on the roles, influence and visibility of female practitioners today
╱ Symposium über Rollen, Einfluss und Sichtbarkeit von Designerinnen heute
────────────────
╱ Curated by Foreign Legion, Vera Sacchetti and Matylda Krzykowski, A Woman's Work is a symposium organized on the occasion of the "Against Invisibility" exhibition and catalogue, which focus on the forgotten stories of the women of the Deutsche Werkstätten Hellerau.
╱ Das von Foreign Legion – Vera Sacchetti und Matylda Krzykowski – kuratierte Symposium A Woman’s Work ist eine Ergänzung zur Ausstellung “Gegen die Unsichtbarkeit”, in der es um die vergessenen Geschichten der Frauen in den Deutschen Werkstätten Hellerau geht. Ausgehend von der Ausstellung untersucht A Woman’s Work die Gegenwart, um die bis heute fortdauernde Unsichtbarkeit von Gestalterinnen deutlich zu machen.
╱ The symposium sheds light on the invisibility of the female practitioner as it continues to exist today. A Woman's Work is structured in three parts: 'Advocates of history', 'Enablers of visibility' and 'Dismantlers of existing conditions'. The gathering aims to bring women in and around design, art and architecture to the fore, advocating for their visibility to become a permanent condition.
╱ Gegliedert in drei Teile – ‘Advocates of History’, ‘Enablers of Visibility’ und ‘Dismantlers of Existing Conditions” – bringt das Symposium ein breites Spektrum an Praktizierenden, Wissenschaftler*innen, Autor*innen, Kritiker*innen und Kurator*innen aus verschiedenen Teilen Europas zusammen mit dem Ziel, fach- und generationenübergreifende, vielfältige Perspektiven auf die gegenwärtige und künftige gestalterische Tätigkeit von Frauen anzubieten. A Woman’s Work will Frauen in und um Design, Kunst und Architektur in den Vordergrund rücken und sich dafür einsetzen, dass ihre Sichtbarkeit eine dauerhafte wird.

╱ The working language will be English.

╱ PROGRAM:
• 9:30 – Registration
• 10:15 – Introduction
Matylda Krzykowski and Vera Sacchetti, Foreign Legion
• 10:30 – Introduction to “Against Invisibility”
Klara Němečková, Curator, Kunstgewerbemuseum Dresden
╱ 10:45 – Part 1 – Advocates of History
“Women have always been there”, critic Alexandra Lange has recently noted, “but we have overlooked their contributions.” If design history has been skewed from the start – given the perspective of those who wrote it in the first place – what can be done to rediscover women designers? Advocates of History looks at recent examples of revisited design history, in exhibitions, books and events, that seek to celebrate female practitioners and their contributions to the fields of design and architecture.
Thomas Geisler, Director, Kunstgewerbemuseum Dresden
Mary Pepchinski, Chair for Architectural and Societal Studies,TU Dresden
Libby Sellers, Design historian, consultant and author of Women Design
• 12:00 – Lunch Break
╱ 12:45 – Part 2 – Enablers of Visibility
It is not enough that female practitioners do the work – it is also up to those in positions of power to bring their work to the spotlight. How can we make sure that the histories of these designers are written, talked about, broadcast? And how can they be transported from one generation to the next? Enablers of Visibility examines the roles of museums, schools, critics, journalists, and even social media in disseminating the stories of women designers.
Katrin Greiling, Designer and teacher, founder of Studio Greiling
Alice Rawsthorn, Design critic and author of Design as an Attitude
Antje Stahl, Journalist and editor, Neue Zürcher Zeitung
• 14:15 – Ritual of Self-Empowerment
Pinar Demirdag, Practitioner and founder Pinar & Viola
╱ 14:30 – Part 3 – Dismantlers of Existing Conditions
Even while pushing for the visibility of the female practitioner, we often fail to recognize our own bias and ingrained behaviours. How can we create frameworks for the visibility of women designers without replicating the same Eurocentric stereotypes, and without overlooking different perspectives and geographies? Dismantlers of Existing Conditions discusses strategies for shifting our perspective, and that of our students, our audiences, and our establishment.
Danah Abdulla, Designer, researcher and educator, Brunel University London and Decolonising Design research group
Christoph Knoth, Graphic designer, web developer and professor HFBK Hamburg
Sarah Owens, Professor of Visual Communication at Zurich University of the Arts
• 15.45 – Roundup and Concluding Remarks
Tulga Beyerle, Director, Museums für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg
Matylda Krzykowski and Vera Sacchetti, Foreign Legion
